Vamps and Flappers

Certainly got my attention. I like this idea of wardrobe for a photo shoot. From the Facebook group Vamps and Flappers of the 1920’s, 1920’s, and early 1930’s.

“Actress Lorraine Marshall in the 1933 film “Footlight Parade”. Marshall was a bit actress and dancer in many pre-code film and early talkies, including “It’s Great To Be Alive” (1933) and “I’ve Got Your Number” (1934).


Randalene

I have said it before, one of the most beautiful women I have ever photographed. And I have photographed her many times. My buddy Randalene Sergent. Makeup and hair styling by Natalie Lyle.

Ali

I have always loved this photo. My buddy Ali Harris. We were up above Pioneertown in Yucca Valley CA doing a sportswear shoot. Makeup Artist Natalie Lyle was there too. We were all good friends and having a lot of fun. It was just plain getting cold and I gave Ali this blanket to keep warm in between setups. Just happened to shoot this photograph. The sportswear was great but I thought this was just beautiful. Thanks!

Cobra Attack!

I heard them but they were on me before I could even get ready. I got my iPhone out of my pocket. I had just finished up a day of flight operations at the Palm Springs Air Museum. We were just getting ready to close the gates on the ramp.


Those Red Shoes

She told me they were actually easy to wear and walk in. I sure do have the best luck with tall models named Maria!

Photo shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting.


Fit And Edgy

One of my favorite models, Bailey Daniels. Both fitness and edgy. Perfect for me! My go-to outdoor lighting system in bright overhead Palm Springs sun. The Broncolor white beauty dish, one head on a Broncolor 1200L Move pack. Hasselblad digital camera system. My other favorite outdoor lighting is none, just the bright sun. I like the harshness. Thanks!

Sergi

From my photo shoot with bodybuilder Sergi Constance, here in the desert near Palm Springs California.

A photo shoot that would work in today’s social distancing. Just myself and Sergi in the desert with no one around at all. Also simply done with a Canon 1V camera body, Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens and Kodak Tri-X film. Thanks!

Chatting With Sherri welcomes back multi-talented photographer; Ian L. Sitren!

Ian L Sitren is a multi-talented photographer. He creates amazing pictures of athletes, models, actors and aircraft! “As a little boy I used to build military aircraft models and hang them from the ceiling in my room. Now I get to photograph them and fly in historic and military airplanes from World War II and many others.”

“My project about the Yiddish Theatre has it’s beginning with my own family. Uncle Izzy as he was known in our family, was one of the pioneers of the Yiddish Theatre along 2nd Avenue in New York City along with the famous Maurice Schwartz. The impact of the Yiddish Theatre through the Century and today reaches from Edward G. Robinson, Irving Berlin, and even Marlon Brando and so very much more. Indeed without the Yiddish Theatre even “Apocalypse Now” may never have been the motion picture it became.”

“Photo excursions started out a few years ago with me just looking for interesting shoot locations. Then a couple of my friends wanted to come along so they became road trips for the purpose of finding the odd and unusual. One of the guys in our group does paintings from his photographs and is now in galleries here in Southern California and Montana and has been in number of prestigious art shows. Another of our group has also been successful in art shows with his photographs, here and abroad. Art Patron Magazine last year did a story about our photo excursions.”


Grafitti At Rock-A-Hoola

Some examples of the graffiti at Rock-A-Hoola, an abandoned waterpark east of Barstow in the Mojave Desert.

The Leica Film Look

Going a different direction for some of my photography. Will be shooting some film in a Leica lllf camera. This camera was manufactured in 1952 or 1953. All manual and not even a light meter. I always loved the look of film shot in Leica cameras.

Velvia

Fujifilm Velvia has been one of my favorite films. Even when I shoot my Fujifilm X-Series digital cameras, I shoot RAW and Velvia film emulation. It was because of the photographs in this book that got me into it. I like the saturated colors and high contrast. And I will be shooting the film again too.

Walter Iooss is a long time photographer for Sports Illustrated. And the man who shot the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition for years.

Film Again

I always liked shooting film. Dwayne’s was the only film lab left still processing Kodachrome. I like many photographers saved our last rolls to get into Dwayne’s to be a small part of photography history.

Now in these changing times, I am going back to shooting some film for a change of pace and for the idea of going back to the history of photography. There is no more Kodachrome or Kodachrome processing but many films are in production and have been brought back in to production.
